About Me

My apologies to Trunks...when I changed to a picture of that character, this page still said it was a picture of my previous avatar (Gohan). Just adding this info for when the "Internet Archive" archives this page next.

My full name is Matthew Paul Argall. I, um, am autistic.

My blog:

I listen to a lot of music. The songs range from all eras of recorded music (going back to 1890s and to as recent as a few years ago), but mainly consists of tracks from 1950s-1980s.

I have a larger-than-usual video game console collection, ranging from Intellivision to Wii U. Yes, I even have flop consoles like the Atari Jaguar. I also have a CD-i 210 (best game on that system: "The Apprentice", a platformer), but that system wasn't a console in the strict sense, as it was originally marketed as a all-round home entertainment product.

I'm really into classic TV, particularly 1950s live shows.

I also like anime, but have seen relatively few anime series.

Random trivia: Australia's first TV soap opera was "Autumn Affair", which aired from 1958 to 1959. Amazinly, nearly all of the episodes still exist.

Random trivia #2: A near-complete run exists of the 1948-1950 US TV series "The Morey Amsterdam Show". I've seen about 4 episodes and hope they issueall the extant episodes on DVD some day.

Random trivia #3: One of the first "Black" artists to issue recordings was "Unique Quartette" back in the 1890s. However, such recordings did not become common until the success of Okeh Records in the 1920s.

Here's a clip of 1947 British television, consisting of a singer (Adelaide Hall) singing two songs:

My favourite song? I don't know. Possibly "One of Us" by ABBA.

My favourite TV series? I don't know. Possibly either "Naruto Shippuden" or "The George Burns and Gracie Allen Show".

My favourite film? I don't know. Maybe either "The Band Wagon" (1953) or "Ninja Clash in the Land of Snow" (2004). Or maybe even "Clash of the Wolves" (1925).

My favourite video game? Easy. "Super Mario Bros 3" for the NES. Or better yet, the version that appears as part of "Super Mario All-Stars" on the SNES.

I collect many things, including magazines, vinyl records, CDs, video games, old computers, DVDs, Blu-rays, etc etc.

I enjoy taking photographs.
